Our dear Mozere is really lost now and he wrote

Theophilus of Alexandria with the help of a Christian mob demolished the temple of Serapis with the adjacent library,books were burned ,clay idols were broken,gold and silver ones stolen.Irefer the reader to The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire chapter 28 by E Gibbon

Let me ask you again

What happened to the mother library that was located in the Brochion district, and what really happened to the daughter library that was located in the Serapeum (located in the Rakoti district of the city?) and what and when were the buildings destroyed as in the year and by who and why were they destroyed and what happened to the books

It is your chance to shine our dear Mozere whose ancestors the Greeks and the Armenians and the Syrians were brutalized by the Tukish hordes that invaded the Byzantine empire

I will be waiting for your answer with great anticipation but do me a favor stick to only the fate of the library of Alexandria now do you get it?
